ViewSonic announced two new LED-based smart home theatre projectors, the X1 and X2 as part of CES 2022.

According to the company, they utilise the latest next-generation LED technology to ensure higher brightness levels of 3,100 LED lumens and up to 30,000 hours of usage. They both also have native FHD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) resolution, and integrated Harman Kardon speakers.

They both feature auto keystone correction and four-corner adjustment, 16 GB of storage in each model, USB-C and HDMI 2.0 ports.

Connectivity comes through built-in 5GHz Wi-Fi for screen mirroring and streaming. Users can even control the X1 and X2 from a smartphone via the ViewSonic vCastSender app. With Bluetooth, the X1 and X2 can be used as a Bluetooth speaker with music from a phone or tablet or can be used with Bluetooth headphones for personal viewing and listening.

The main difference between the two is that the X1 comes with a 1.3x optical zoom and a standard throw lens, while the X2 sports a 1.2x optical zoom and a short-throw lens. The X2 has a 0.69 to 0.83 short throw ratio for up to 100-inch images on a wall or screen from around 150cm.
